two headlines you need to know. poll, obama has a mandate to raise taxes. and fiscal cliff talks appear stalled. almost two-thirds of americans say the election results give president obama a mandate to raise taxes on the wealthy. and 64% say obama has a mandate to protect entitlement programs like social security and medicaid. >> and it's not raising taxes on them, it's letting the old tax cuts expire as they were supposed to do two years ago. >> thank you. >> stephanie: good morning, congress woman judy chu. >> good morning. >> stephanie: thanks for take time with us. >> it's great to be with you. >> stephanie: i'm sure you are looking at the same polls i am, the vast majority of americans agree with him exactly on these issues, right? >> exactly. in fact it is really upside down. the people who lost the election are protecting the top 2% the people who won the election are fighting to protect the tax rate of 98% of americans. >> stephanie: thank you. i thought i read this wrong this morning. i don't think john boehner understands what compromise means. the president reduced the incom

hour to tell us about the fiscal cliff clayen. jacki schechner healthcare geek. i ahead an article on the hill, we should warn the cockles -- leave medicaid out of the talks. liberals are pressing to take medicate off the table in deficit reduction talks. you talked about this in our last jacki's healthcare corner. >> the medicaid expansion is interesting because part of the way that we're going to get everybody covered is expanding medicaid up to 133% of poverty. that's part of the affordable care act. and the president and the administration are being very strong right now about insisting that states have to follow the law to a t and not be able to implement it incrementally or partially. so not only leave it out of the talk but the administration is holding firm right now and insisting that this medicaid expansion either take place in its entirety or not at all. >> stephanie: i wound up the healthcare bot. >> sorry.
